    You’re kidding me… “The U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations had to defend herself
    Wednesday when Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) targeted her actions at the
    U.N.”

    More like Gerry Connolly put down his martini for a half minute to interrupt Nikki Haley about two topics unrelated to the UN speech she was giving.

    The obvious bias RestonNOW has for the left would be a lot harder to take, if it wasn’t for the continuous weekly wins of the Trump Train Making it great again!

    Gotta love the (expensive) love being spread by Metro; one story down, it’s BOHICA — fares up, service down.

    How much does it cost metro to send 700 administrative workers to “personally thank” riders? #smh
